Trump gives dramatic account of Soleimani's last minutes before death

On Saturday, CNN obtained audio of the fundraiser, which was held at Trump's Mar-A-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.

Trump on Monday said his administration has been "totally consistent" in its explanation of the intelligence that justified the strike."Here's what's been consistent: We killed Soleimani, the number-one terrorist in the world by every account", Trump said.

"I said, 'where is this guy?'" Mr Trump continued. "How much are we going to listen to?" Trump said Friday, according to remarks from a fundraiser obtained by CNN. This validated the administration's previous claim that an "imminent threat" against the USA was the reason for the strike. "They're gone, sir. Cutting'". Trump continued. "That was the last I heard from him."Soleimani's killing led to a dramatic escalation of tension between the United States and Iran which was already strained after Washington exited from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran nuclear deal, in 2018".

"'Sir, they have two minutes and 11 seconds.' No emotion".

"'They're together sir. They have two minutes and 11 seconds to live, sir".

Trump did not describe an "imminent threat" that led to his decision to kill Soleimani, the justification used by administration officials in the aftermath of the attack. They're in the auto, they're in an armored vehicle.

Earlier, on his soon-to-be-formally-started campaign trail, Trump also praised the Soleimani assassination, which closely followed an early January raid on the US Embassy in Baghdad, along with an operation conducted late a year ago that killed Daesh leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

"Sir, they have approximately one minute to live, sir". 30 seconds, 10, nine, eight. then all of sudden boom.

In a separate tweet, President Trump praised the people of Iran.

According to Reuters, the Mar-a-Lago event raised $ 10 million for the president's re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee.

Trump spoke amid a brewing controversy in Washington, where some lawmakers, especially Democrats, have said the White House has repeatedly shifted its justification for the January 3 strike, which pushed Washington and Tehran to the brink of war.

The president said nothing about an "imminent attack" on U.S. interests or threats to four U.S. embassies as he previously has to justify the unilateral military strike that escalated tensions in the region and opened debate on presidential war powers, the Post said.
